I'm getting ready to add borates. Got my 55 lb bucket of boric acid on order from Duda Diesel.
Question on recommended TA level, understand it's best to adjust before you add borates as it's difficult to do afterward. My TA is 80. I've been seeing my pH drift upwards since I converted fully to bleach from trichlor a couple of months ago, so been adding quite a bit more MA than I was, probably a gallon every 1-2 weeks, before that on trichlor it was rock solid stable. TA is down from about 110 a couple of months ago.
Wondering if I need to lower my TA further prior to adding borates, or is 80 ok?
